I am hereby declaring that I love doing this weekly blog BUT, this summer, I am going to an EVERY OTHER WEEK schedule. SO the next post will be June 27. I did this change one other summer, and, as I told a friend, the world didn't stop then, and it won't this summer either.... There's just too much else going on -- or at least that's how it feels after the many, many months of lock down. We now get to be cautious on the move....or in the garden.
Here are a few photos arising from recent times:
|This is the first daylily to have bloomed, outside my door. The view shows that daylily closing up for the day and for forever. I do absolutely nothing to take care of this patch. Yet, so far, every year, they return to excel again.|
|I made this photo in May, but I'm not sure where. Usually I remember every photo and where I was at the time. If anyone viewing this post knows where I was, please let me know! Thanks!|
|I treated myself to lunch at the Pho Saigon restaurant, in Lexington. The meal was fantastic, both beautful and delicious, and very few people were there. I am a fan of Vietnamese food, and I once had a ten day visit to the beautiful country itself.|
Then this morning, our Quaker Meeting (in Lexington) had its first in-person gathering, with some of us remaining on Zoom. I didn't know about this project the teens presented, but I thought it wonderful and couldn't resist a quick screen shot. Everyone is still masked, so I don't know who anyone is, but thank you so much, thank you all, for this beautiful and joyful banner.
I am going to add one last photo after I post this much, of the hay in my relatively small field. We may have a stretch of dry weather this week, so the tractor that comes to mow my neighhbor's field does mine as well.
|There's a second batch of phoebes in my carport. The parents take turns sitting on the roof of my car, resting up, if bird parenting is anything like people parenting! The nest this time around looks to me like a large cupcake. |
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT I WILL RETURN AFTER TWO WEEKS, and I hope each one reading this has some laughs by then from something that happens and time to feel connected to those people important in our lives. Ann
